Explorer's Room on the Drummer Stream has Library Music all the time !

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Gaylord Fields:

Yay Faye! Yay sound library music by guest Alex!
Avatar 8:13pm anomalee:

very kitsch indeed. sounds similar to the theme to the 70's Dating game, "Music to Drive By".
Avatar 8:13pm Faye:

Gaylord! I'm so glad you could make it! We are humbled in the presence of the master of library music!

Hey Faye. The Swinging Safari goes way back in my musical memory. I haven't heard this since......
Avatar 8:19pm anomalee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm chresti:

Felt like Torch is Burning with Bert's song a little-the 101 horns version.
  8:19pm Eric Kilkenny:

I have the Best of Bert Kaempfert on a compact disc. Growing up watching the Sandy Becker Show made me a fan.

Hi, Faye and Fayutes! I'll comment now and read the terms and conditions later. What could possibly go wring?
Avatar 8:21pm slugluv1313:

Good Evening, Faye and Alex, Skeletons, Domestic Partners!

I really dug "Swinging' Safari." It was "Wim-o-Weh," but, like, not "Wim-o-Weh."
Avatar 8:24pm anomalee:

i used to own an Esquievel compilation. i dumped it after a few rotations.
  8:24pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Mailman Tom, eureka,The Sandy Becker Show,at least 55 years since I heard this! Sadly,Sandy passed recently.
Avatar 8:24pm Mailman Tom:

The video rental store that was in my local area was owned by a Mr. Esquivel who was related to Esquivel!

  8:28pm P-90:

I feel like I’m stuck on hold with the Sears mail order department in 1970
  8:29pm Eric Kilkenny:

More Encoch!! :-D
Avatar 8:29pm anomalee:

the Sears catalog was the greatest thrill during the holidays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...working w/ this somehow :
Avatar 8:30pm anomalee:

it was like a Bible. chock full of cool, retro toys.
  8:30pm headcleaner:

At least Sears had good taste, back then - can't go wrong with Jobim
Avatar 8:31pm anomalee:

didn't Shatner cover Jobim during his spoken word recordings?
Avatar 8:32pm slugluv1313:

i still have this one too!
a huge favorite when i was a little kid, made a cassette (!) copy for a friend who was working for an ad agency years ago (80s?), she LOVED it!
and dig that *crazy* LP cover, hah!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Webhamster Henry:

  8:36pm yippie:

because the library is where the lies are buried
  8:36pm Eric Kilkenny:

@faye you just told me you were an editor I think didn't realize you worked in animation too
  8:36pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Where are my eyes Kates
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yay Animation
  8:37pm Eric Kilkenny:

@webham yeh! dude there's a bunch of animators here it would be fun to do something

  8:41pm ?:

Love this show!
Avatar 8:41pm Faye:

i'd like everyone to know i've lost a lot of weight since that gif was drawn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Webhamster Henry:

These comics are funny, Alex Krokus! I bet you knew that!
Avatar 8:42pm anomalee:


yes i know. the rendition was so serious. Laugh out Loud.
  8:44pm headcleaner:

I'm actually of the "taking William seriously" camp - I rather like his performances, for what they are.
Avatar 8:45pm anomalee:

no Wiliam is definitely a fascinating artist. i own Has Been on cd.
  8:45pm headcleaner:

Granted, I can only listen to them in... special moments, shall we say. But they're quite special, for what they are.
Avatar 8:46pm anomalee:

precious too.

Avatar 8:48pm Faye:

it's fun when your guest is a comics artist, their work really takes to the playlist format!
Avatar 8:49pm anomalee:

do u wanna copy of Golden Throats cd?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Webhamster Henry:

... while promoting Promise Margarine.
  8:49pm soupfriend:

definitely never noticed it before but I now totally buy the point raised earlier about lounge and library music being naturally conducive to laughs and hijinks
Avatar 8:50pm anomalee:

could burn a playlist for u.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I probably haven't earned my library card yet, but I'm getting more familiar with what means library music.
  8:51pm headcleaner:

Meanwhile, there are an infinite number of Bossa Nova covers that, while perfectly executed technically... just don't register at all with me
Avatar 8:52pm anomalee:

jazz and lounge music is for serious listeners. Shatner & Nemoy are part of the revival.
Avatar 8:53pm anomalee:

being facetious again. DOH!!!!
  8:54pm Eric Kilkenny:

Thanx Faye & Alex
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
